Hmmmm. I wonder if you used an 81pt font and scaled it down what that would look like?
We are too clever for that ;-) Its not the user point size, its the 
final device scaled
size that affects this decision. ie 80 *pixels*.

Or is it that the AA algorithm is "better" for this case? If you did a screen capture would it be high enough quality to show exactly what it is you see?
